Assessing The Impact Of Videos In Promoting Learners‟ English Second Language Comprehension And Listening In Omusati Region

ABSTRACT

This study assessed a learning environment where learners were exposed to authentic and rich language input, and it has shed light on the use of multimedia pedagogies in second language (SL) teaching. By using videos, the study explored the impact of multimedia on language comprehension. The study was conducted in Omusati Region, Namibia on Grade 11 learners doing English as a Second Language NSSC Ordinary Level at a selected secondary school. Two Grade 11 classes were selected to be part of the sample, with one class being the experimental group, while the second class was the control group. The sample consisted of 41 learners per group. This study focused on finding out whether or not the use of videos has an impact on the English language comprehension of SL learners. This study was a comparative quantitative study, using a quasi-experimental research. Pre- and post-tests were administered on all participants. Instruments for this study consisted of English comprehension tests and listening tests. In the English comprehension tests, the experimental group watched videos and answered questions based on the videos, while the control group had the same content as the experimental group, but instead of videos, content was transcribed into text format. In the listening tests, both groups were given the same content and answered same questions on paper, but the experimental group‟s content was presented in videos with audio, while the control group only had an audio.
